To associate a Recruiting site (also known as a microsite) to your brand, it's need to enter with microsite ID in the Microsite Id field.

The microsite identifier is generated in SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting during microsite creation. If a brand has an associated microsite and a candidate applying for a job using Candidate Account Simplification this has the microsite ID added to the Apply URL. 

But if the microsite is deleted consequently the microsite id will be non-existing and when applying to a job requisition associated with that old microsite from Recruiting Marketing when the RMK redirects to the RCM part to apply this redirection won't be possible because the microsite doesn't exist to that instance, and it will throw the error.

IMPORTANTE: To avoid this error we have to make sure that no brand is associated with this microsite before disabling it.
